Organization from Germany posted this Technology CallSeeking eco-friendly bleaching and oxidative cleaving process for waxesWaxes are typically make up of linear or branched-chain hydrocarbon chains and can contain polar functionalities like e.g. ester or amide groups. Their importance has been well recognized, especially with the growing demand of modern consumer products like packaging, cosmetics and pharmaceutical. Plant-based or renewable waxes are also gaining favor in recent years due to higher sustainability compared to fossil based waxes. We are seeking sustainable green oxidative cleavage process that can convert renewable ester waxes, like rice bran wax and sugar cane wax, to similar end products obtained by conventional processes. Many oxidative cleavage processes are already established in the industry, but not many are eco-friendly. Furthermore, with the shifting focus from fossil waxes to plant-based waxes, alternative oxidative technologies do result in chemically different products from different plants. Here the company is keen to explore modern bleaching technologies or to work with technology-partners with bleaching experiences on renewable materials. The company is open to partners from any country and to a variety of cooperation. Research cooperation agreements with research organizations might yield into publications or consequent R&D contracts. Depending on the stage of technology readiness, an out-licensing of the process is possible or a joint venture might be a way to further develop for feasibility studies for a pilot scale up.
Organization from LATAM posted this Technology CallSeeking Chelating Agents for AHSS (Advanced High Strength Steels)We are seeking a solution that eliminates oxides formation from AHSS and promotes surface corrosion inhibition. The solution should be able to be incorporated into a standard electro-deposition coating process (e-coat). Some AHSS are prone to exhibit high surface corrosion with evidence that some of them may present a thicker oxide formation at welded areas. This condition may, therefore affect the adhesion of the anti-corrosion coating system, ultimately causing painted components to be more prone to corrosion. We are seeking innovative technologies capable of efficiently and completely remove oxides in AHSS surface and welded areas while promoting surface corrosion inhibition.
METALSA posted this Technology CallSeeking Additive Manufacturing Materials for Cold Forming DiesFind materials that are able to be processed by means of additive manufacturing technologies and are suitable for cold forming operations. The materials provided should withstands heavy cyclic loads due to the working conditions of the process. We are seeking innovative materials that are capable of being processed thru additive manufacturing technologies and could work under cold forming process conditions.
Organization from European Union posted this Technology CallSeeking a new active ingredient technology for a topical cosmetic application for diabetic skinWe are looking for an innovative Skin application for diabetic Skin. Currently all the cosmetic products designed for diabetic Skin relieve the Symptoms (e.g. dry skin, itchy skin) but do not improve the underlying cause. We are seeking biologically active ingredients which can be directly applied to cosmetics. Mode of activity can range from improving blood circulation, enhance skin sensitivity to improve sugar induced skin stress like dissolving AGEs (advanced glycation end products) or beyond.
Familia Torres posted this Technology CallSeeking a method for controlling the implantation of yeasts during alcoholic fermentationWe are interested in knowing if during the alcoholic fermentation yeasts that are fermenting are the same ones that have been inoculated. The molecular method we use is long, we need 2 days to obtain the yeast colony, 1 day to get enough biomass and finally, 1 day to obtain de mitocondrial DNA and do the electrophoresis to know the result. We would like to go faster in obtaining the yeast and the biomass needed to get the result, especially.
